Bunny quiet? Oh no, you're wrong. Perhaps to those who 
do not know her she appears so, but we know better. We've 
seen her in the music rooms with Willa, and other places. 
She can't fool us. Also, what a cheery person she always is. 
She never complains, even though sometimes she has cause to. 
And what would A. D. S. do without her 5 Wasn't she stun- 
ning in "Overtones"? A true blue New Englander turned into 
a typical society-woman.

Because of her position in the school, Ruth is one of our 
busiest members. She bears the brunt of the Christmas party, 
the teas, and discussion groups. What would we do without 
her? And we don't envy your frequent tasks of collecting 
money, Ruth, but we take our hats ofF to you for the fine 
results you achieve.

Will you ever forget Pat as Kate in "The Taming of the 
Shrew"? She displayed a temper quite equal to her red hair. 
Indeed, Pat is destined to be a second Ethel Barrymore or 
perhaps another Mrs. Fiske. Pat and Miriam sometimes seem 
very quiet, but we are told that room 63 often resounds with 
shouts of laughter.

Donna is tall and distinguished looking and always looks 
like a model from Worth's. She spends most of her time 
listening to the radio or vyriting to Jack. Yes, we think she 
will look very well in white. Any time you walk into the 
Food Shop you are almost sure to find Donna there, eating a 
sandwich and reading the Saturday Evening Post.

This young lady is a close rival of the Prince of Wales in 
riding or shall we sav falling ability. She has a very subtle 
humor and it is constantly bursting out in her clever repartee. 
Betty can write in a marvelous fashion and her literary 
talents are constantly seen gracing the pages of the Courant. 
Because of this abilitv she is a valued member of Odeon.

Elaine is one of the versatile members of our class. She is a 
musician, ask Aeolian and the day scholars; an artist, any 
underclassman who has bought some of her used books will 
agree with that; a writer, many things in this book and in 
the Couranr will testify to this, and in addition, she is a 
strong supporter of the Honor Roll.

Posy, the girl with the contagious laugh can be called

her artistic abilitv as an able member of Les Beaux Arts.

As we look back over our school years we feel that Gay is 
one of the most indispensable members of our class. Her 
readiness to accept, and her ability to carry through any and 
all of the tasks which require time, patience, and headwork 
have earned for Gay the admiration and gratitude of us all. 
If it hasn't been the Class Treasury or the A. C. A. Treasury, 
it has been the business end of the Courant; and never a com- 
plaint from Gay. To top it all she is a perennial member of the 
honor roll and carries off honors in dramatics and sports. 
And it isn't everyone that can win a Bradford Day Cup for 
form riding!

Elenita is one of the few members of our class who has a 
legible and at the same time stylish hand-writing. Then, too, 
she has show-n musical ability, and can swing a mean hockey 
stick. But what hidden knowledge is betrayed by that 
mysterious little smile of yours, Elenita? Can it in any way 
concern a friend of that handsome double of yours sometimes 
seen about the streets of Andover?

chirpers in good order, one more feather in her cap. She has 
winged her way over many a dance floor, and Betty, whence 
that far away look? Are you thinking of migrating so soon?

Doll we call her, and the name fits her well, for she has 
light wavy hair and beautiful eyes. She is one of our "cutest". 
We have memories, Doll, of an orange and russet evening 
gown you wore the night of the Phillips prom. She almost 
rivals Helen Kane for "boop boop pa dooping" honors. And 
she can certainly drive even the most stubborn horses — 
"Giddyup Tri xie" .

Aren't you ever lonely, Kay, all by yourself at the very tip 
top of the Honor Roll? We'd all love to come right up to keep 
you company but — well, for some reason or other we don't 
do it. Kay seems quiet to outsiders but when she and Lucile 
get together the result is more than sufficient to counteract 
the previous statement, especially when it's a question of 
sending cards at Intervale. Isn't that right, Kay?

What would the class of '30 have been like without Kathie? 
Certainly no one could have made a better "Madame Presi- 
dent" or could have led class meetings, engineered the 
picnic, Intervale, the play and a whole list of other things 
with greater success. You have done more for Abbot than we 
can fully realize, Kathie, for we know there were a hundred 
little thankless jobs that you have done cheerfully and well. 

That white satin costume lined with delicate green was 
certainly stunning on you, Lucentio, and you have no idea 
how gracefully that snowy ostrich plume curved under 
your chin. The way you wooed the gentle Bianca, at re- 
hearsals particularly, was quite startling too, dashing 
Lucentio. 

Our love to you Kathie. We will remember you, and your 
smile.

How many times has Kay kept us in stitches with some 
witty remark that sounds funny when she says it but if we 
try to repeat it, it loses its flavor? Then, too, the way she 
plays tennis makes the Griffins sit up and take notice and 
they are still sitting up when she begins to skate. It's too 
bad, Kay, that the one time you fell down should be the time 
to crack vour knee, and we certainly missed you at Intervale.

No matter how gray the day is Florence always greets us

ambition for grand opera because she is always singing. The

of this she so noblv runs our athletics. In addition to this 
she participates in them and shows her prowess in basketball 
and baseball. Her talents are also shown in the dramatic line. 
Her winning personality and pep have made her an indis- 
pensable member of our class. Don't ever try to argue with 
Sis against Virginia and Yale 'cause you can never convince 
her.

There is a certain Intervale snapshot of you, at full length 
on the ice, with Kay sitting on top of you. My, my, my, such 
an undignified position for Baptista to be in! Was Kay 
acting shrewish? Perhaps you wished "to sound the depths of 
this Knavery", but decided not to when you considered your 
position on skates. 

There is another thing that we have noticed about Lucile, 
and that is that for some strange reason she is often very 
interested in the sports section of the Boston Herald.

How did it feel, Nini, to see yourself walking with Kathie 
in the Abbot movies of the Centennial Procession? We all 
think you looked mighty sweet, but then there seems to be 
an idea in the class that Nini is about the most even tempered, 
and one of the sweetest girls among us. 

What would we have done at Intervale without you to 
"Turn on That Intervale Moon", for us? Then Inters ale snap- 
shots without you would certainly have been incomplete.

A cute little girl from her voice down to her legs. It's all 
right, Perry, we lo\e you just the same. Whatever she does, 
she dives into it head first, whether basketball or conversa-

In our minds "Chubby" will always be connected with 
good looking clothes and tea dances and Proms "on the hill". 
She certainly rates and we don't wonder. Not only in Andover 
either, because she seems to get quite a bit of mail from 
Brunswick. She is another one of our hockey players and we

Class Prophecy 

Daughters of the class of '30 
If your futures you would see, 
Harken to these words of wisdom 
Telling what you each will be: 

Bunny always did love children 
Kindergarten was her craze, 
Training boys in paths of duty — 
Twins just use up all one's days. 

Ruth has shone in Social Service. 
For the reason I have found, 
Smiling, laughing, always cheery, 
Ruth makes sun and light abound. 

When her travels she has ended, 
Donna in a cottage small 
With "Beloved" will soon settle 
Right beside a waterfall. 

Betty Brewer brought to Broadway 
Comedy and music fine. 
In her glorious reign of stardom 
Art and fun she'd intertwine. 

Betty Brown, in Math proficient, 
Is a Wall Street financier. 
She has made a lot of money. 
Truly, she's had the career. 

Op, our wondrous Latin student, 
Turned her gifts to higher ways, 
Found that "Tech" boys love the Classics 
If they may upon her gaze. 

Announcement of the wedding regal 
Came a little while ago; 
Posy Castle's raving beauty 
Is the toast of Mexico.

Gay her home on rock has founded, 
Farming in the Woolly West. 
Pigs and cows and horses many 
Hubby bought at her request. 

Nita Cowee was kept busy 
Getting to her "dates" on time. 
Now she finds it very easy, 
For she's bought a trolley-line. 

Betty Dean as fairest Elsa 
On the Civic Opera stage 
Fills the place to overflowing. 
Tickets make the poor man rage. 

Doll is someone's secretary, 
Has his files right up to date. 
She has kept him very busy, 
Scolds him when he is too late. 

With the outcome of elections, 
Kay her due the White House claimed, 
President of all this country, 
Followed Hoover's methods famed. 

Alice Eckman's first grand entrance 

In the held of literature 

Was acclaimed in 1930, 

Now she's gaining fame secure. 

Radio listeners, gather nearer, 
Kathie Fellows sings tonight. 
President of Abbot '30, 
Always is our guiding light. 

Foster is a famous lady 
Can't you see her seated there 
Heading diplomatic dinners 
Queen of every fine affair. 

Florence while she was at Abbot 
Saved up all her pretty coins 
Then she opened "Gardner, Banker" 
Right where Wall Street Broadway joins.

By rhe wiles of southern air 
Says she will not leave "Virginie" 
And the loved plantation there. 

For her generous, free "bus-rides", 
Has Grace Hadley won much praise. 
Now she owns a fleet of taxis; 
Making money is her craze. 

Evelyn's a great pianist, 
In New York she's gained her fame. 
Aether waves bring us her rhythms, 
All the nation knows her name. 

Jean will not be always single, 
Off to Zanzibar she'll go 
With her grand explorer-husband 
She the earth will learn to know. 

Bubbv will be ever merrv, 
Always entertaining too. 
She intends to run a gift-shop 
Just to help the poor Hindu. 

Alma Hill has long been staying 
In New Hampshire's ruddy clime. 
There is writing lovely sonnets. 
Critics all extol her "rhyme". 

Marianne, our learned scholar, 
In Japan has made her home. 
Teaching "heathen" is her passion, 
Though she plans the world to roam. 

Christine is a noted actress, 
Known to all as "Dolly Dee". 
For her beauty and her dancing, 
People travel far to see. 

Jackie Hoyt has now decided, 
College is the place for fun, 
So she's teaching Dartmouth's finest 
Art and music not to shun.

Thought she'd learn to ride in planes, 
Took just one aetherial journey 
Now she's going to stick to trains.

Senior Class Song 

Class of '30 now thv daughters 
Give to thee their highest praise, 
We will try to bring thee honor, 
Turn to thee in future davs. 
And our love for our dear school, 
Strengthened by our loyalty, 
Will go on forever growing, 
'30, here's to thee! 



Tree Song 

Blue may the sky be above you; 
Softly may breezes blow; 
Deep may vou thrust down your rootlets; 
Strong mav your branches grow. 

Rise toward the sun in God's heaven; 
Drink in His blessed rain; 
Shelter the birds and their nestlings; 
Steadfast in storms remain. 

Just as the leaves wreathe your branches 
Making crowns green and fair, 
So will our love hold encircled 
Abbot's rich treasures rare.

Oh, ler us gather here in Song, 
Let us our voices raise! 
Class-mates of '30 now unite 
Singing together in Abbot's praise. 
It's not the ring we love the most, 
It's not the golden glow. 
But it's the memories it will bring, 
That make us love it so. 

W hen far from Abbot we have gone, 
School days left far behind 
W e will recall the fun we had, 
Happiest memories will come to mind; 
Then we will sing again the songs, 
On our class rings we'll gaze, 
Those shining rings will symbolize 
Cur happv Abbot days.

Intervale 




The Abbot Circle 19 3 



Intervale 

Surely, a magical word to Seniors is "Intervale". Perhaps since we have returned 
from our four-day trip to the White Mountains, the underclassmen have wondered 
just what is the charming significance of a word which can bring forth from every 
Senior, a smile and a rapturous look. To tell you of the snow-capped hills, of unsur- 
passed New Hampshire pines, of "rosy-fingered" sunrises, and golden sunsets; to tell 
you of flapjack-bats, of sleigh-rides, trailing parties, and skating by moonlight; to tell 
you of the wonderful meals, of the hospitality of the Bellevue, of the joy of perfect 
comradeship, and of a million other miscellaneous things, is to give but an inadequate 
explanation. We must excuse our insufficient powers of description and ask you, oh 
underclassmen, to wait and learn for yourself how the magical word, "Intervale", 
acquired its powers. 

We are not the first Senior Class to sound your praises, Beautiful Intervale, but wt- 
aspire to sound those praises loudest of all.

Intervale Songs 

(Tune: 0, hou I bate to get up in the morning) 

O. how we hated to leave New Hampshire, 

O, what a marvelous time we had. 

Though we were happy, gay and glad 

There was one thing which was sad, — 

We wished that you, too 

Our dear Faculty 

Could be with us up in the mountains, 

O. how vou would have enjoyed those sleigh-rides 

O, how vou would have loved the views. 

Up there where cold north winds do blow 

x\nd gorgeous, stately pine-trees grow. 

Wed like to spend the rest of our lives in the snow 



(Tune : Am I blue) 

Am I stiff, am I lame, 

Will I ever again be the same? 

Am I bruised, am I sore, 

Yet I long to go back more and more. 

One cold day I took a trailing ride, 

Then tried my luck on the toboggan slide 

Nearly died . 

Am I stiff, am I lame, 

Will I ever again be the same? 

Turn on that Intervale moon 

Any old night, 

You'll find us riding 

Along in its pale yellow light. 

Bright stars will gleam in 

Its pale yellow beam, 

If it will shine, 

So, clouds, be gone, 

Fair weather, come on, 

Won't vou turn on that Intervale moon.

The Abbot Circle 19 3 



Intervale Songs 

Tune: (I've got the blues} 

I was a big girl at Abbot 

Thought I could do anything, 

Skating never bothered me 

And that's the reason I sing. 

I've got the blues, black and blues, 

Those Intervale, winter-sports blues. 

I'm stiff, I'm sore, 

I wish I'd practised more, 

I guess I got my dues. 

So, honey, take your exercise every day, 

Cause if you don't, you'll wish you had, I'll say 

I've got the blues, black and blues, 

Those Intervale, winter-sports blues. 



Tune : (Sure a little bit of Heaven} 

Sure a little bit of heaven 

Fell from out the sky one day, 

And it nestled in New Hampshire, 

Not so many miles away. 

And when the angels found it 

Sure it looked so sweet and fair, 

Thev said. "Suppose we leave it 

For it is so peaceful there." 

So, they sprinkled it with sunshine 

Just to make the pine-trees grow, 

They're the finest ones that can be found 

No matter where you go. 

And they placed the mountains round it 

Just to keep away the gale, 

And when they had it finished. 

Sure, thev called it Intervale.

Carol 

O hush, 'tis the brush 

Of the cherubim winging, 

Tis the ecstacy 

Of the angels' soft singing, 

That Mary hears; 

As with tender fears 

She kneels by the manger low. 

O soft, 'tis the sigh 

Of the Christ Child's awaking. 

'Tis a radiant song 

That the choirs are making, 

But Marv prays — 

While the joyful lays 

Ring forth to hail a new King.

The "A" society was organized in 1917 for the purpose of promoting school 
spirit, good sportsmanship, and leadership. The society is made up of girls who have 
won the "A's" by having at least 250 athletic points. These points are won by making 
the various athletic teams and by taking a required number of walks and rides. 

In addition to the athletic points, scholarship, school-spirit, general conduct, 
and posture are considered in the awarding of "A's". The society promotes an interest 
in all group activities and stands for high standards of school life.

Bradford Day 

On November 2, was held the first Abbot-Bradford play day in the history of the 
school. We all wore gym suits and it was a play day in every sense of the word. Instead 
of the two schools competing we were divided, irrespective of school, into color 
teams. In the morning we scattered to various fields and courts to participate in games 
and earn victory for our respective teams. After lunch we held a sing. After that there 
were the riding drill and relay races. Then the Rose team was announced the winner of 
the day. At the end of the day we sang farewell songs, and everyone agreed that our 
first plav day with Bradford had been a great success. 



Gargoyle -Griffin Day 

Next in importance to Bradford Dav is Gargoyle-Griffin Day. This year, because 
of the lack of competition on Bradford Plav Dav, it was especially anticipated, for we 
had stored up a great deal of keen competition spirit. The day started off in fine shape 
with the usual parade around the circle, culminating at the tennis courts. There we 
separated and watched either the tennis, croquet, clock-golf or archery tournament, 
all of which were plaved off simultaneously. Later a hockey game was staged. After 
lunch came the basketball for both the first and second teams, followed by the riding 
games. The dav ended with an informal tea in Davis Hall. It was really the very best 
Gargoyle-Griffin Dav we have ever had.

Senior Play 

"THE TAMING OF THE SHREW" 

"The Taming of the Shrew"! the title tells the story. Have we not all read this 
famous comedy of Shakespeare? There is Katherina, the curst, who is not to be subdued 
until the clever Petruchio woos and weds her in a week. He carries her off to his 
country home and there by scolding and fuming at the servants, scaring and giving 
Kate no rest, he thoroughly subdues her. Their last argument is on the road to her 
father's home when there is an argument as to whether the sun or moon is shining 
brightly and here Petruchio permanently fixes his superiority over Kate. At the 
banquet scene he shows how he has turned her into an obedient and loving wife. 

"A lusty wench," said Petruchio when he laid eyes on the red-headed, fiery-eyed, 
bad-tempered Kate, who was so well personified by Pat Brewer. Barbara Lamson as 
Petruchio made a gallant, smiling but rough tamer. When these two burning fires 
met, they consumed and formed one. 

Lucile Leavitt played the part of Baptista, a dignified, all-commanding father, 
unable to manage his own daughter, Katherina. Bianca, his other daughter, was as 
gentle and sweet as the other was proud and cross. Bianca was apparently the more 
approachable of the two sisters, but her father would not let her marry until Kate had 
a husband. Among Bianca's suitors were: Kathie as Lucentio, who finally won her 
hand, Janice as Tranio, Lucentio's servant who changed clothes with his master and 
put on all the airs and graces and Connie as Hortensio and Gay as Gremio were both 
very humorous characters. 

The servants ran around in a bewildered fashion, adding color and life to the 
play. Occasionally there was music which likewise helped the atmosphere. 

The Senior Class is to be congratulated on its splendid interpretation of "The 
Taming of the Shrew". We feel sure that they did justice to it under the steady, whole- 
hearted coaching which Mrs. Gray gave them.

Abbot Dramatic Society Plays 

"OVERTONES" 

On December the tenth, the Abbot Dramatic Society presented "Overtones", a 
verv weird play. Four people are on the stage of which only two are real; the other 
two are their inner selves who show the real attitudes of the two women towards 
each other. The two real selves always act politely and sweetly towards each other; 
while their inner selves, unnoticed by the real selves, say sharp words and light con- 
tinually. Each woman is jealous of the other. Margaret came for Hettie's gold but 
Hettie wants to win Margaret's husband. The play was very funny and immensely 
enjoyed. 

CAST OF CHARACTERS 

Harriet, a cultured woman Audrie Griffiths 

Hettie, her primitive self Elizabeth Brewer 

Margaret, a cultured woman Louise Atkinson 

Maggie, her primitive self Christine Hollands 

Scene: Harriet's Living Room 

Time: The Present 



"FIAT LUX" (LET THERE BE LIGHT) 

The other production, "Fiat Lux" was entirely different from "Overtones" and a 
difficult play to put over, although the actors did put it over. Azariah has lost all 
faith, because he believes that God has purposely taken away his children. He refused 
admittance to the carol singers. Nothing his friend, Father Ambrose, says can bring 
back his faith. Then he imagines that he sees his son, the soldier, and later his little, 
lame daughter enter, speak to him and leave happily for the help and shelter he has 
given to them. His old faith returns and he calls in the carol singers and they make 
merry on Christmas day.

Senior Middle Plays 

"THE FLITCH OF BACON" 

On Januarv rhe twenty-first the Senior-Mid class presented two plavs. '"The 
Flitch of Bacon" is the story of a bachelor who promises a flitch of bacon to the 
married couple who can live together without quarreling for a year. He does not be- 
lieve such a thing is possible, until a timid, loving couple come to his home to demand 
the bacon. After trying very hard he finally makes them quarrel, but he discovers that 
it is better to have quarreled and made up than never to have quarreled at all. The 
dialect and the costumes were both very quaint and pretty.

•RICH MAN, POOR MAN" 

'"Rich Man, Poor Man" is a charming scene at a rummage sale. Emma is in 
charge. Peter, her lover, comes to ask for her hand, but she hides him behind a screen 
when she hears a customer approaching. All the customers demand something which 
is not in sight; but Peter sends each one away content by handing over the screen to 
Emma just what thev ask for. After the screen itself has been taken, Peter comes forth 
wrapped in a blanket. The play is indeed very funny and of course Emma accepts Peter.

Improvisations 

As the poet sees her: — 

Her eves are blue as the autumn mist, 
Her hair is like the sunny South; 
A smile, the ghost of a childhood laugh, 
Still lingers on her mouth. 

As the satirist sees her: — 

Her hair is only a peroxide hue, 
Her painted smile, too, is a part; 
She's like a puppet in a show 
For she has a sawdust heart! 



Cologne Cathedral 

A silent drizzle fell from a soft black sky, smiled as it passed through the ray of 
a street lamp, and softly caressed each blade and flower in the cathedral park which 
lay half concealed in blue shadows. 

Beyond, veiled in rain-mist, like a dream or a vision rose the towers and spire of 
Cologne's great cathedral. The grace of the flutings and tall pointed arches, the deli- 
cate curve of each misty rose-window was faintly revealed by the city's dim light. 
The high-flung spires soared through the darkness, like a spirit ethereal, uplifting, 
unreal, or like supplicating arms reached upward in prayer. 



In such peace and beauty rare, 
The Infinite seemed hovering there.

To a Musician 

Were I to paint your portrait 
I'd only draw your hands 
They'd show the life and spirit 
Your face might never show. 

Their size, their strength, 
Their loveliness; 
Their grace, their poise, 
Their tenderness, 
All yours, and you. 

Were I to paint your portrait 
I'd only draw your hands, 
And they would speak so clearly, 
Your soul would be revealed.

The Indian 



Perhaps, one time 
Long years ago, 
In these same woods 
The Indian ran. 



Perhaps he crouched 
Behind that tree, 
In wary wait 
For warrior foe. 



Swift as the arrow 
From the bow, 
Or as the deer 
When startled, flees. 



Perhaps he drank 
From that same brook, 
Or lay upon 
Its mossy bank. 



No Indian now; 
Just brook and trees, 
And near my foot 
Stone arrow heads.

If Seniors Were to T^un Loose 

"It is a serious thought of mine," 

Miss Bailey said one day, 
"To let you seniors all run loose 

Yet still at Abbot stay. 

To eat your meals or not to eat, 
This I would leave to you, 
To wear high heels at all events 
Would be your own taboo. 

If you should choose to take a walk 
At midnight or at noon 
To welcome callers any time 
'Good luck to you!' I'd croon. 

In case some kind-hearted soul 

Bequeathed you a victrola 

I should not at all object 

To occasional strains of "Nola". 

And then a radio, my girls, 
Might bring you peace of mind 
Might cause you bigger and better marks 
I think this you would find. 

But Alack! Alas! I have not thought 
That by this great addition 
To the welfare of vour class 
We would oppose tradition."

An Abbot Tragedy 

Once upon a time there dwelt in a Castle in the country of Flanders a very rich 
Lord. He was very Stout and a great Kidder for which he was much beloved bv all his 
Fellows. 

One morning he arose very early since he was going to Hunt on a nearbv H;ll. 
After a scanty breakfast of Bacon and a Cann of Rice, he ordered his chauffeur to bring 
out his Broun Dodge. However, he was told that that Can was out of commission; so 
he would have to go in the Rolls Royce. At last he set out with one of the Folk from a 
neighboring White Hill. 

At last thev came to the Place where they were going to Hunt. Thev had poor 
luck, and a young Bullock was the only game caught. Not long after thev met a Piper, 
who played so well that the Lord asked him to come to his Castle. 

Upon their arrival home, the Cook prepared a huge repast of Bass and Pike, and 
the Brewer brought on some Berry wine to drink with the cakes that the Baker had made. 

While sitting before the Cole fire, the Page, who was onlv a Child told the Lord 
that the Piper had fallen out of the Toner and landed with a great deal of Force. 

The Gardner discovered the Piper, who fell unto a barrel of Tarr and he was so 
weak that he had to be bound up with a Brace. The poor man did not survive the shock 
long and died while he was making his Will. 



Life Is Lil^e That! 

I opened mv mouth to speak. What was the matter? Not a sound came — Had I lost 
rav voice? Oh ! If thev would wait just one minute and I could be of so much assistance ! 
I was afraid to speak out what I reallv thought. Why, oh why, couldn't I take the 
easv way out of a situation like this? But I couldn't — just couldn't — because it wasn't 
being done. Oh dear! the breakfast table did look so neat too! I made a desperate 
effort to say what I wanted to, but above the noise of the dining room my voice was so 
faint that not a soul turned to listen — even I could hardly hear it. In another minute it 
would be all over. Franticallv I jabbed the girl beside me and tried to point out what 
I meant. Too late — ! Her arm came down to her side and at the same time there was a 
very loud ringing sound as the tumbler tipped over spilling the water all over the 
neatly-laid table. All over! It was no use. I just couldn't remember how to say, 
"Look out" in Spanish. Life is like that!

The Abbot Bell 

There are in our existence, many different kinds of bells; church bells, door bells, 
street car bells, cow bells, my lady's bell, the bell around the cat's neck, and the Abbot 
bell. However, the bell with which we are concerned is the Abbot bell. 

This bell wakes us up with its br-rr-r — tells us to dress, go to breakfast, clean our 
rooms, and depart for chapel. It guides our classes, study hours, silent times, recrea- 
tion periods and even our supposed to be peaceful sleeping hours. We are constantly 
reminded of our next dutv bv that never ceasing br-r-r ! 

What can be done to rid us from this torment? Some of the town loafers might 
well be emploved to stand in the various corridors of the school and quietly announce 
the hour. An instrument might be invented which would play a different tune for the 
various daily tasks; a lively rising song, a hymn for Chapel, a march for meal time, 
and a jazz-tune for recreation. 

Either of these two methods or many more might be used, but something must be 
done to save the youthful Abbot girls from its torment, and also so that in later life 
thev will be able to do different things without being reminded by the br-br-br-br-br-r 
of the Abbot Bell.

Neither Borrower Nor Lender Be 

There is nothing like the gentle art of borrowing to add spice and variety to the 
usual monotony of boarding school life. When your roommate buys a new dress, never 
fail to borrow it from her at the earliest possible moment. She will profit by this in 
that you will show her dress off to the best possible advantage and she will be able to 
blame you for any spots which may result from unhappy circumstance. 

If you've spent your entire allowance ahead of time and just don't know what to 
do — surelv someone will lend you a dollar — because everyone is anxious to help a poor 
girl in need. 

Perhaps you want to put your Friday evening caller in his place by suddenly 
becoming engaged to someone else. Who is that girl down the hall with the diamond 
solitaire? 

Then, of course, in the case of cold weather, a fur coat is an indispensable article 
of clothing. This you can doubtless obtain from your neighbor across the hall. If your 
galoshes don't match your roommate's probably will. 

In pursuing this quaint custom, you will gain the hearty goodwill and favor of 
evervone because of your open, unaffected manner.

Parting Hymn 

Father, I know that all my life 

Is portioned out for me; 
The changes that are sure to come 

: I do not fear to see; : 
But I ask Thee for a present mind 

Intent on pleasing Thee. 

I ask Thee for a thoughtful love 

Through constant watching wise, 

To meet the glad with joyful smiles, 
: And to wipe the weeping eyes; : 

And a heart at leisure from itself, 
To sooth and sympathize. 

Wherever in the world I am, 

In whatsoe'er estate, 
I have a fellowship of hearts 

: To keep and cultivate; : 
And a work of lowly love to do 

For the Lord on whom I wait. 

So I ask Thee for the daily strength 

To none that ask denied, 
And a mind to blend with outward life 

: While keeping at Thy side; : 
Content to fill a little space 

If Thou be glorified.
